California to start first-in-the-nation training to help transgender voters

California Secretary of State Alex Padilla announced a first-in-the-nation partnership with an LGBTQ civil rights group to train poll workers to make it easier for gender-nonconforming and transgender voters to cast ballots. In most cases, California voters are not required to show identification to a polling-place worker. Still, many transgender and gender-nonconforming voters may be registered under a name that does not match their gender presentation. Joe Garofoli, The San Francisco Chronicle.
